#CowesWeek - Lendy Cowes Week organisers are seeking a new regatta director to replace the departed Phil Hagen.

The job is a year-round, part-time post with responsibility to evolve the on-the-water side of the regatta, in order to build upon Cowes Week’s prominent position on the global sailing calendar.

The organisers are looking for someone who is well-known on the yachting and racing circuit, has the vision to take the racing programme forward, and can work with existing and potential entrants, class associations and organising clubs to ensure the event offers the best possible competitive experience.

“Finding the right regatta director is crucial to continue evolving the event on-the-water,” said Peter Taylor, chair of Cowes Week Ltd. “This is a great opportunity for the incoming regatta director to really make their mark at one of the world’s premier regattas.”

The new regatta director will work as part of a small executive team and also with the member clubs of Cowes Combined Clubs through the regatta’s sailing committee.

The closing date for applications is Monday 6 November with interviews set to be held during the week commencing Monday 13 November.
